Experienced, Respectful Nanny Available!

Hello! I am an experienced nanny searching for a new position, beginning this month! I am looking for a contract lasting June through sometime in November when I am due with my own little one.  I have worked as a fulltime professional nanny since June 2013, and my partner and I just moved to Portland from Seattle this month.  While I am sad to have left all of my beloved nanny families in Seattle, I am excited to connect with some wonderful Portland families!

My childcare philosophy draws from RIE, Montessori, and attachment/gentle parenting. I've primarily worked with toddlers and infants, and I am continually amazed by their curiosity, compassion, intelligence, and energetic awareness. I believe in treating children with respect, honoring their innate wisdom, and doing my own internal work so that I can be the most compassionate and loving caregiver possible. I m a big believer in natural and unassisted motor development, supporting independent play, teaching consent early, giving children the space to figure things out on their own (you won t see me demonstrating how to use a toy!), involving even young children in daily tasks around the house such as cooking and cleaning, and holding supportive emotional containers for big toddler emotions. I am familiar with Montessori philosophies, Waldorf pedagogy, RIE tenants, baby led weaning, babywearing, cloth diapering, elimination communication, gentle sleep training, co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding, and alternative pediatric medicine. I also work as a birth and postpartum doula, although I am not taking birth clients at this time. 

I look forward to hearing from you!




P.S. I would like to stay in Portland proper during this time!
